RESCUE begins with a Passover seder. Elderly strangers, Alex and Mela,
non-Jewish guests at the seder, lead eight-year-old Marissa to ask her
father a fifth question. "How do you know them?" Jacob, prodded by his
brother David, closes the Haggadah and tells her, "This year we'll tell
the story not from [the Haggadah] but from here," pointing to his heart.
"This is also a true story, only more recent." Jacob tells of David's and
his rescue when they were children in Poland, a rescue in which this elderly
couple were the heroes. This book tells the actual story of Jacob and David
Gilat (Gutgeld) and their heroes, Alex and Mela Roslan. (Barbara
